Mystery Scrap Week 1 (Wednesday)

Woohooo!!!  I hope you all have your pics picked!  It's time for step 2!  Before we get to that, however, a big THANKS to my mom for suggesting "Mystery" for the weekly layout project.  In quilting they do something similar and it's called Mystery Quilting. So voila - Mystery Scrap. Whaddya think? Anyway - back to business...

You will need:
1 12x12 solid color cardstock for background
Patterned paper 1”x9.75” strip
White or light colored cardstock 2.25”x3.5
Colored cardstock 3.5”x3.5” and 2.25”x3.5” (you could also use patterned paper, but keep in mind the 3.5x3.5 piece is for your journaling
Letter Stickers, die cut letters or chipboard letters for title ~ .5” tall
A couple small embellishments (like i-rock gems, little buttons, bow, etc) OR a larger embellishment
Journaling Pen white or dark depending on the color of your 3.5 x 3.5 square piece (or you can format your journaling to fit on the 3.5x3.5 square piece of colored cardstock if you want to print your journaling.) 

Don’t get too bogged down – when you see the example layout, you can move things around or change where the journaling goes.  It’s flexible – just a guideline to get you started. You take it from there!  If you want to follow the formula exactly – feel free!  If you’d rather use it as a jumping off point, that’s fine too.  This week’s page is very very simple, but you can embellish it as much as you’d like to fancy it up (if that fits your page & style better!)

Gather these things (remember, try to stick to 15 minutes!) and I'll see you again Friday for your last step of this first page! By the way - I encourage you to forward this blog link to any of your scrappy friends.  Share the love!
